Friday 9 May

Another pleasant day forecast. Andrew brought the cows into our front field when I wasn’t looking but we now have a green black and white front field and when it is quiet you can hear them munching! Two cleaners up with two cottages and two B&B out and the same back in. Also went down to Bakewell to get bits for the weekend. Last of bedding plants arrived so will find time to do those in the next day or so. Some were not looking happy. First guests arrived about 3.30. They are here for the Chatsworth Horse Trials. This three day event has been taking part at Chatsworth for a number of years. The B&B guests arrived about 5pm, one of those is here for the Horse Trials too. Had dinner then spent some time in the greenhouse before the final cottage guests arrived about 8pm. It was a lovely warm evening – lets hope there are more to come this summer.
